Beetroot, Glorious Beetroot – The Sequel

The first thing I thought when I prised open the jar and swiftly nibbled at a piece of forked beetroot was, ”This is as tangy as heck!”

After just over a week of leaving the beetroot and spiced vinegar to get all close and personal, I decided that today was as good a day as any to release the seal and keep my fingers crossed that everything went OK.

And it did.



The vinegar, as hinted above, had an unexpectedly acidic aftertaste that was both tasty and off-putting.  I’m not really into the taste of vinegar, I should point out – a packet of Salt & Vinegar crisps generally has me reeling away with a sourly ‘bleeeuuuuuuhhhh’ exclamation.

That said, this pickled beetroot is really not bad at all.  It can’t really be compared to the vacuum- or tin- sealed versions sold in the shops – they tend to be packed in watery-purple liquids that aim to be both inoffensive and bland.

If you don’t mind the tangy taste, you’d probably enjoy Mrs Beeton’s Pickled Beetroot.

    Hi there, love following your Mrs Beeton adventure.

    Just thought I’d let you know that we’ve added paragraph links to so you can now link directly to a relevant recipe instead of the whole page.

    For example, will link straight to the Barberry Tart recipe. Hope this helps!

    Sorry to leave this in your comments but could see no other way to reach you.

    All the best, M.
